Under the supervision of registered nurses and physicians, licensed practical nurses may care for infants and mothers, children and adolescents, and young, middle and older adults. Using learned technical skills, practical nurses assist clients in meeting their physical and psychosocial needs. Licensed practical nurses administer medications and perform treatments.
The program has been accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), formerly known as the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), since 1975. The program is one of three practical nursing programs (out of 22) that are ACEN accredited in the state of Minnesota. www.acenursing.org
